INQUIRIES

When contacting me about a job, please include the date by which you would need it completed and returned, the approximate quantity, and any other helpful information.

LETTER PRESSED VERSES

Please choose from the gallery for my current selection of letter pressed verses.  They are letter pressed on an elegant cream card stock with the pressing slightly visible on the back. The verse, when fit into a 5×7 frame or an 8 x 10 mat, has a nice margin.

FRAMES FOR LETTER PRESSED VERSES

Frames are an additional $10 and saves you the trouble of framing it yourself.  I buy them from a local store and they are lovely wooden frames.

 RETAINERS

If you will be providing the paper or materials for a job, I usually consider those to be a suitable deposit. If I will be providing the paper, then a 50% deposit is required with the remainder due upon completion. I will then mail or deliver your final package back to you.

TIME FRAME

I can usually complete small jobs in a week and bigger jobs (over 100 envelopes) in 2-3 weeks. It is good to contact me early for weddings and big events so that we are not rushed and have time in the end for additions or changes.

INK & COLORS

I use a black waterproof ink with a little sheen to it which is nice for envelopes that might otherwise get rained on or for place cards adorning a dining table.

PAPER

I will happily provide an elegant cream paper for your place cards for less than you would purchase them elsewhere and then pay for shipping.  Folded, the front measures 4″x 2″. If you provide your own paper, please provide 20% extra for additions, changes or unforeseen errors. 

SENDING LISTS OF NAMES

Regardless of whether your addresses will be centered, staggered or left justified, when sending lists of names and/or addresses, please send in Excel (or something similar) and follow the example below:

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Smith

800 Raven Circle, Northeast

Atlanta, Georgia

30305

Next address and so on, below

Please send the addresses in one long column, either centered or justified.

Please spell everything out unless you choose to have abbreviations.  I try to follow Crane’s Book of Wedding Etiquette but whatever I see on your list will be how I write it on the envelopes. However, if the envelope is smaller than average and/or I

cannot fit everything on a line, then I may choose to write smaller or make an exception and abbreviate.

SHIPPING

Shipping costs are an estimate and depend on the amount mailed. Shipping costs will be included in your invoice. I like to use either UPS for weddings or USPS Priority mail which offers fast delivery, reasonably set prices and tracking.

COMMUNICATIONS

In the process of  lettering your job, I will be likely be asking clarification questions, confirming spelling or making suggestions. You are always welcome to email me with any thoughts or questions.
